Comments Off on Libya’s neighbours offer support to control borders

Libya’s neighbours are offering to help the country control its borders, collect heavy weapons and reconcile rival political forces as security in the North African nation deteriorates.

Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki told a conference that Libyan authorities have agreed to create joint border control forces.

Foreign ministers from Egypt, Sudan, Chad, Algeria and Tunisia met in the Tunisian city of Hammamet on Sunday and Monday to try to find solutions to Libya’s turmoil. They also agreed on a plan to help Libyan authorities collect the heavy weapons that are circulating widely and are falling into the hands of terrorist groups around Africa.
